Mystic Hourglass is a special item given to subscribers who maintain a 3-month consecutive subscription.

Mysterious Time Travelers

The Mystic Hourglass summons the Mysterious Time Travelers who will allow the player to select a Mystery Item set from previous months, pets and mounts from previous events, or an exclusive future Mystery Item, such as the Steampunk Standard Set which will be widely available in the year 3015.

The amount of Mystic Hourglasses a player owns is shown the left of your gems total. That is the right of the toolbar if website or players information in the header of your app. If a player does not own any mystic hourglasses, the symbol will not be displayed.

You can use your Mystic Hourglasses by visiting Time Travellers in Shops.

A Mystic Hourglass is awarded when a player has a subscription for 3 consecutive months. This can be accomplished through either recurring or block subscriptions. 3-month consecutive subscriptions also increase the player's gold gem cap.

Please note that the subscription months MUST be consecutive. If you cancel your subscription, the month count drops back to zero.

Subscription Type Mystic Hourglasses Gold Gem Cap When Received
1-month recurring 1 +5 after 3 consecutive months
3-month block, gift or recurring 1 +5 immediately after purchase
6-month block, gift or recurring 2 +10 immediately after purchase
12-month block, gift or recurring 4 +20 immediately after purchase
